People I Work With

There are 2 people in the group I'm in at work I need to rant about.  One is a total control freak, the other questions me from time to time about his next step on a project.  The control freak seems to plan moves ahead and the questionner just reacts to things.  Somehow I'm friends with both - or at least I think I'm friends with the control freak.  He used to be interested in having lunch with me at least once a week or so and now it's died down to nothing even though he's still friendly.  I can't take these swings in extremes anymore.

They really don't have anything to do with each other due to work roles and assignments, so I don't see myself as a buffer between them.<br />
<br />
The questioner told me he doesn't have anyone else to confide in so I've become that person -- not something I've been interested in lately I'm sorry to say based on how he admits he is miserable, wants out and turned down an opportunity to get out a few months ago.

I think you need to recognize who you are . Your a buffer, and sounding board ,translator between to conflicting personalities . They most likely realize that about you , when arbitration is required your invited . <br />
<br />
Question is do you want that part ?<br />
<br />
Do you get recognize for the role ?
